Spacious and quiet at Mountain Star!

Deirdre from Toronto, Canada
Date: Feb-23-2017 for a stay in Feb 2017

This unit is wonderfully spacious, well-kept and comfortable... in the lovely and peaceful Mountain Star resort. We love the Blackcomb side and this place is an easy 2-minute walk downhill to the ski-out trail to lower Cruiser (you pop out at roughly Pole 6 of Wizard Express chairlift) which takes you down to Blackcomb base and Wizard upload.

Tip: if you spend the day skiing Whistler side, take the Excalibur gondola from village to Base II, cut hard left through learning area and across Lower Cruiser and you will find yourself at the trail leading into the Coast hotel and Mountain Star. As you are a fair bit up the mountain, the shuttle is an easy way to get down to the village and back.

Very well-equipped unit - extra linens and towels, staples, fondue!, (could use some more glassware, however), books, DVDs, games, plenty of extras... and a nice private hot tub out back. Owner very responsive and offers excellent instructions. Very nice to deal with someone who skis, understands your needs, and knows the area! Tip: If arriving after dark, drive to end of the Mountain Star Lane to unload, walk up stairs on right and double back 4 doors to reach the unit.

Highly recommend this spot.

Whistler ski trip

We absolutely adored the condo. It was an easy walk (less than 5 minutes) to ski down the mountain, and I think it would have been shorter if there had been more snow. Thank you so much for opening up your home to us!

Location , location, location!

Mountain Star is next to the Coast Hotel, the highest location on Blackcomb Mountain.

We are right on Blackcomb Mountain, ski in ski out to Wizard chair.  We are a 10 minute walk to the Village or take the free shuttle bus.

We love parking our car and forgetting about it until we leave, many of our guests that fly in do not rent a car as you do not need one once you are here

About Us

We live in Vancouver but we spend as much time as we can in this very special place that we love all year around.

We have been skiing, riding, hiking and biking at Whistler since the early 90's, and have recently bought our place at Mountainstar. We spent a lot of time looking for the perfect condo, and location and we are really pleased.  We wanted to be right on the Mountain for skiing and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature but also be close enough to the village and all that it offers.  We really like being able to park our car and forget about it until we have to leave.

We know a myriad of details about the village and the mountains both in the winter and summer seasons; please ask!

We've been skiing, riding, biking and hiking in Whistler for years. Please let us know if you have any questions to help make the most of your vacation!
